One of the fun things of doing woodworking with our son as he grew up is watching him learn and explore new projects and techniques that interest him. We had an interesting conversation yesterday on two topics, both in the Japanese drink category. The first is the Masu Cup. Basically a box to hold ice to keep your drink (in this case, some type of cocktail) cold. Here is a pic of one that he provided, 'cause I sure had no idea what he was talking about. As you can see from the pic, this particular box is already beginning to discolor on the bottom. If one of you were to entertain building such a box, for the purpose of holding ice... what sort of finish would you use hoping for a long life from it? This second pic is of a hot tea that son & DIL made. At the Japanese market they found a type of tea containing cherry buds. Directions called for it to steep until the bud blossomed. They were both curious and delighted to find the bud actually opened. He reports the tea was also delicious...
I wanted to turn something today so I took a chunk of scrap wood I was going to use a while back. Its oak so it was tough wood to cut through. But I wound up turning a cup it actually came out quite successful in the end. Scrap to something not too bad. I didn't water seal it or anything just mineral oil on it. Did the water test in the end it worked out pretty good. I'm happy with it at least. But this one will NOT be going to anyone. I've got to get better finishing out the bottoms of the cups on the inside. The video is there not sure why it didn't come up with a image capture. Either way it works.
